    Victoria / Vancouver Island meeting and casual LF user group

    First, I'd like to announce an LF users' group mailing list for people in Victoria and on Vancouver island.

    Just go to google groups (groups.google.com) and search for "victoria-large-format-user-group". You should be able to sign up from there, I think.

    Otherwise you might be able to send an email to victoria-large-format-user-group@gmail.com and you'll probably get an automated reply telling you how to sign up.

    Next, it might be fun to have a casual get-together of some sort. I'm happy to volunteer my place to the cause - I live in Vic West and it should be pretty easy to get to. I'm not sure what date but possible the weekend of the 16th or the 23rd. Alternatively, maybe you're all busy enjoying your summer weekends outside, so some weeknight might be a better idea? The idea would just be to get to know each other and share some prints - nothing rigid or formal, just a casual meet-up.

    The Calgary LFUG that I used to visit had a good system where we'd meet once a month on the second Tuesday just to show a recent print or two and hang out, alternating between people's houses or locations. It was pretty fun and seemed like a good way to share experiences and show images to each other. Maybe we could eventually do something like that?

    Thoughts?

    If everyone's busy with vacation and camping and stuff, we could put it off until September.

    By the way, yes, this was discussed here before but it was in someone's introduction thread, so I figured it might be a good idea to post this to pull anybody else out of the woodwork.

    Walter: I'm up for it either weekend, although with some provisos (out for dinner on of the Saturdays, and I golf Sunday mornings).

    Cheers,

    Alright, I'm just returning from a trip to Cowgary (leaving tomorrow) and I'll suggest some arbitrary date once I'm back in town.

    The 23rd works for me.

    Looks like it'll probably be the 24th at 7pm in the evening (sunday night). If that's annoying for a significant number of people it can be changed, otherwise we'll go ahead with that.

    Check the mailing list for my address or PM me.

    Wish I could join you, one of my favorite places to photograph for over thirty years.

    Hi Don, are you still golfing with the Toyo?

    Best,
    Merg

    That'd be really cool. I just missed you in Calgary as I just moved away from there
